Call for technical papers:  IDGTE 2016 Technical Papers Events

An opportunity to present a paper at an IDGTE event and get your paper published

The events we held during 2015 have been most successful and IDGTE appreciates the really good response to previous calls for papers.

IDGTE is now planning for two Technical Papers Days to be held in 2016. The topics will include Gas Turbine and Engine applications, also ancillary equipment and related topics.  We need offers of technical papers for these.

IDGTE is also planning for two One Day Seminars to be held in 2016, each with topical themes.  The subjects may include Emissions Compliance, Grid Stability, Emergency Generation, Integration with renewables.  We are seeking offers by presenters interested in taking part.

The date of these events has yet to be announced.  If you have interesting experiences or ideas in any of these areas why not send us a short abstract for consideration of 100-150 words.  Do not wait – if you are interested then send your abstract to IDGTE as soon as possible so that your place can be reserved.   All papers will be peer reviewed before presentation or publication in the Power Engineer.  We need offers right now and a short abstract of your proposed paper.  These should be sent to the “Papers Co-ordinator” at
